Tie-up between ORIX Rentec and Toray Precision

ORIX Rentec Corporation, a subsidiary of ORIX Corporation, and Toray Precision Co., Ltd., have recently agreed to cooperate in offering contract-based modeling, machining, and machined object finishing services using 3D metal printers.

ORIX Rentec has been providing contract-based modeling services using 3D metal printers to produce prototype and other products for the automobile, heavy machinery, and other industries since May 2015. This tie-up will make it possible to fabricate high-precision formed objects using Toray Precision’s metal machining technology. The tie-up will assist customers in achieving smooth product development by providing a range of integrated services from contracting to high-precision processing. The tie-up will allow each of the two companies to make use of the 3D metal printers owned by the other, thereby shortening customer delivery schedules and providing modeling in a wide range of materials, including titanium and stainless steel.

ORIX Rentec has introduced 3D printers that can handle plastics as well as metals. The company utilizes them to provide contract-based modeling services adapted to the various demands of customers that are primarily major manufacturers. Going forward, the two companies will combine their 3D printer modeling and high-precision processing technologies to contribute to product development efforts by an increasingly diverse variety of customers.
